Introducing the New 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser
We are super-excited to share the details of the highly anticipated, new classically rugged SUV. The Land Cruiser is Toyota’s ubiquitous off-road icon and its longest-running nameplate. 2024 marks the triumphant comeback of the Land Cruiser to Canada, after a 35-year hiatus.
This beloved SUV has been a worldwide symbol of rugged reliability and adventure for decades, and the 2024 model is set to continue that tradition, while embracing the modern era with advanced technology and a refreshed, yet classic new design.
The design of the 2024 Toyota Land Cruiser seamlessly blends ruggedness with sophistication. It retains its iconic “boxy silhouette”, but with a fresh and contemporary twist. The Land Cruiser 1958 Grade incorporates “Toyota” Heritage Grille and iconic round LED headlamps. The Land Cruiser and Land Cruiser First Edition models feature modern rectangular LED headlamps.
For the signature Land Cruiser look, the 1958 grade features the iconic circular LED headlights and “TOYOTA” heritage grille, while Land Cruiser Grades upgrade to slim, rectangular headlights reminiscent of the FJ62. A squared body profile resembles that of Land Cruisers of old, and the A pillar is pushed back, not only to complement the look, but for better outward visibility on the trails. The front overhang has also decreased for greater approach.
